Some railroads downgrade the diesel engines on their older locomotives when shifting from road to less-demanding switching duties. The object is to reduce engine maintenance costs. Downgrading includes removal of turbos and perhaps some other engine adjustments. Could such a tactic be worthwhile on higher-performance marine diesel engines?
